I'm drinking (hot toddies).
I'm playing with my stuff.
I received my kit for the CloudsFactory 2015 Through the Stars Zodiac sampler mystery thingie!
I lurve it, I lurve it so much, except for those gold rayon threads (the white threads are not rayon, I think there was just too much for the organizer slot).
I think that CloudsFactory's designs are adorable - maybe not something I'd want to stitch a lot of, but hey, it's zodiac themed, and how could that not be even more adorable?
So I was in for the mystery.
The decision came down to kitting it or not.
And here's my dark and dirty little secret - I love PTP fabrics. A. Lot. I adore them. I think they're my favorite hand-dyed fabric supplier, and when I surf through their colors, I always run across Gothic and I want it SO BADLY, but I can never think of what in the world I would stitch on it.
|HOW COULD ANYONE NOT WANT THIS?!?!?!|
The fabric really is that gorgeous, the deep midnight blue with pink and light blue highlights and is every bit as beautiful as I was hoping.
And I don't own any of the WDW threads, so nothing will go to waste (well...).
My only ish is the rayon threads. I have a full on hate for rayon threads. I stitched Ice Dragon's Kingdom and Moonlight Guardian, which are big rayon pieces, so I can work with rayons, I just hate them. So, I'm trying to decide if I can just suck it up for the small bits of the mystery or if I should try to find a silk alternative (I think that silk gives off a comparable sheen without the pain of having to stitch rayons). I'll be out of town near and LNS in January, so I can do it early enough that it won't impact my progress.
Anyway, SO EXCITED!!! And I can't wait for the parts to start coming out for the mystery!
